5-System - Japanese method, developed by Toyota - Efficienta

The japanese 5S system

5S is a Japanese method, developed by Toyota to create order and method at the workplace.

The 5 S's can be interpreted as:

  • Sort the tools and materials that are used at the workplace. Separate what is necessary from what is not.
  • Set in order that, which is necessary and easily accessible. Give it a suitable place and remove everything else.
  • Shine regularly, some cleaning each day, major cleaning each week.
  • Standardize the daily routines. Use to do lists for daily upkeep of the machinery and premises.
  • Sustain the order. Improve the to-do lists continuously.

The T-plastic pocket has a green heading/work done/and a red heading/work not done/.

Example of work organisation: You can set the cards week-wise for one or two years ahead.
